May the years that are yet to come to them be as happy as those that have passed.
Until recently Samuel FREY was a familiar figure, having been employed as mail carrier
between the junction and the postoffice. He has filled positions of responsibility and
his life has been a busy one. He was billing and checking clerk at the junction for
seventeen years. For ten years more he was baggage master at the junction. Then,
having been mail carrier a number of years, he became well known to the people of
Shelby and vicinity. He filled all the positions with honor to himself and is known as
a man of integrity. His Mexican was war experiences have already been published in
the Globe. He enlisted for general service at Mt. Vernon in March 1847.
Both Mr. and Mrs. FREY have enjoyed good health during their lives and feel grateful
for having been preserved too celebrate their golden wedding.
